Texas Forever

As I said in my return post I'm being sent to Austin Texas to do some learnin' for my new job. I suppose what I failed to mention is that I am leaving tomorrow.

I'm leaving tomorrow (Sunday).

I was excited about the trip up until today and then my crazy took over and I began to loathe the idea of going. I'd like to say that this is an isolated thing, but it's not, it's the effect of any planned event that I've committed to, which is one of the reasons I rarely say yes or no to anything too far in advance. However, I have no choice, I need to learn this stuff and Austin is where it's at.

I don't know much about Texas outside of making sure to not publicly insult the beef industry (thanks Oprah) and whatever I've managed to pick up watching Friday Night Lights, my favourite TV show.

I'll be in Austin Sunday night to Friday afternoon, with nights belonging to me. What am I going to do aside from eat things? I'm not sure. I'd love to crash a high school football game, but it being August and not Friday, I'd be the only one there (maybe?). I hear there are some bats under a bridge somewhere and Anna pointed me towards a pinball arcade, which I'm definitely going to have to go to.

I will try and write some posts while I'm there, maybe about the food, maybe about my crazy, or maybe about how sad I am that I can't watch the Breaking Bad premiere until next week.

Seriously, watch Friday Night Lights (Seasons 1 to 5 available on American Netflix).

  1. Huzzah! I have the same "oh no, a break in my routine" reluctance whenever I have to go somewhere or do something but usually I end up enjoying myself. I know Anna won't steer you wrong (no pun intended, given all the high-quality beef in the area). There probably are high school football practices going on in the 100F+ heat, though!
